Nester's as well as at Heading Home. For a list of all my letters you can go here.
Today I have to step away. Ever since you went away I've wondered if you have found her. It was 40 years ago today my baby girl, Elaine, went to Heaven. You and I were not yet a couple. You were still just my boss. But I remember the flowers that you sent. Beautiful pink roses. And I remember seeing your name, in the guest book, from the mortuary visit. At that time I didn't know yet that you were going to be the man who swept me away. I remember being surprised at your kindness and how much you truly seemed to care. In the Heaven I hold dearly, in my imagination, you are with her. Her finger is wrapped around yours.
I am going to step away for a moment. I'm going to direct my reader here to see the story of my baby girl.
I don't know what God has in store for me yet. But I do know that you two are waiting for me. And that makes today bearable.
An angel opened the book of life
and wrote down my baby's birth.
Then she whispered as she closed the book
"too beautiful for earth".
Missing you both,
